Tips and Tricks for usingthe Library Catalog : Tips and Tricks for usingthe Library Catalog Slide 2: ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? You’ve tried aimlessly wandering the stacks You’ve searched the “new book” shelves You’ve tried googling Now it’s time to check the catalog! Slide 3: blank Slide 4: 1. What kinds of things can I find in the catalog? Books Journals (a.k.a. periodicals, serials, magazines) Recorded music (CD’s, cassettes, etc.) Scores Lots more FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Slide 5: Welcome to the Catalog! FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) : 2. What’s a “browse” ?? Use this kind of search if you know the author’s name, the title, or the Library of Congress Subject Heading. Order counts! FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Browse - author : Browse - author Generally type in: lastname, firstname If the last name is somewhat unusual, you can just put in the last name or last name with an initial. ex.: zafren For common last names, add the first name or prepare to do lots of scrolling Browse - Title : Browse - Title Order counts! If the title starts with an article (a, an, the, ha-, der, die, das, el, la, etc.) skip it and start typing in the next word. You don’t have to type the complete title – just start at the beginning and type in the first few words. The more unique the title, the fewer words you need. Browse - Subject : Browse - Subject We use the Library of Congress system of subject headings. These are terms that the library assigns to a book (or other resource). The term may or may not appear in the title or on the work itself. Like the other browse searches, the order that words appear matters. This can be frustrating because the terms and order are not intuitive. If you are not sure of the subject heading – use a keyword search instead. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) : What’s a “keyword” ? The keyword search looks for your term anywhere in the field Order does NOT matter Use the most distinctive terms FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Keyword : Keyword Use AND to narrow your search. The catalog finds only those documents that contain both the first AND the second search terms Use OR to broaden your search. The catalog finds all documents that contain the first search term OR the second search term OR both Use NOT to restrict your search. The catalog finds all documents that contain the first search term, but NOT the second. Use wildcard symbols to get multiple forms of a word or if you are unsure of the spelling. An asterisk (*) will be replaced by one or more letters. For example femini* would retrieve feminism, feminist, feminine, etc. A question mark (?) will be replaced by one letter. For example wom?n would retrieve woman and women. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) : What’s the best search strategy? If you’re not sure of what subject headings to use, use the keyword search. Find a book that looks close to what you need and then look at the full record Do a new search by the subject headings Ask your local librarian for help! FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
